Phyllotaxis article in Physical Review Letters

The April 23 issue of Physical Review Letters has a focus article on phyllotaxis, relating some of the patterns seen to Fibonacci numbers on the one hand, and trying to trace them to a strain energy minimizing principle within the growing plant on the other hand. The authors are Patrick D. Shipman and Alan C. Newell.

They also point to a website about the mathematics of phyllotaxis at Smith, here -

http://www.math.smith.edu/~phyllo/

Compared the discussion in the NKS book about simple algorithms for such shapes, on pages 408 to 412. There is also a related note on page 1006 -
